Northwestern University will be holding several events, such as featuring a talk by #MeToo movement creator Tarana Burke, where she recounts her personal experiences that led to the creation of what is now known as the movement that’s taken this country by storm. Other events include Eva Jefferson Day, a day full of arts and crafts and discussions about MLK Jr.’s legacy and the Alpha Phi Alpha Candlelight Vigil, an annual tradition that features a keynote speaker and musical performances in celebration of Dr. King’s life/legacy.
